South West

LGBT Labour South West is LGBT Labour’s new regional voice for the LGBT community within the South West region.


We are at an early stage of putting the group together. We will be modelling on the very successful North West region, who have brought lots of LGBT members together and increased LGBT representation within the party across their region.

We'd love for as many people as possible to get involved, and we're especially keen to have representatives from all areas of the region. If you're interested in helping or want to start organising and recruiting members in your area, then let us know.

We will be campaigning for the Labour party within the LGBT community. We organise events, campaigning activity and work with the Labour party, trades unions, community groups and LGBT community to achieve full equality for LGBT people.

The area covered by the South West regional group is: Gloucestershire, Bristol, Wiltshire, Somerset, Dorset, Devon and Cornwal. In this early stage many members are based in Devon and Cornwall.
